The Silence in Thai Contemporary Art

Rirkrit Tiravanija (who's afraid of red, yellow and green)

Fascinating account of how activists have become more artistic in response to Thailand’s social and political injustices.

"While most Thai artists stay silent on activist causes, Thai activists, by contrast, have become more creative and ‘artistic’, incorporating directly theatrical and performative elements into their protests. In this essay, which is excerpted from a lecture I gave at the Gwangju Museum of Art in July, I will give a brief outline of the ways artists and activists have responded to Thai politics."
